Davide Deriu is Senior Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Westminster, and is currently leading the Vertigo in the City project. His main research interests lie at the intersection between spatial and visual culture, with a particular focus on representations of the modern city. After taking his PhD at The Bartlett (UCL), he was awarded post-doctoral fellowships from the AHRC, Yale University’s Paul Mellon Centre, and the Canadian Centre for Architecture, where he also curated the 2011 exhibition ‘Modernism in Miniature: Points of View’.
Davide’s work spans a wide range of subjects, from underground space to aerial visuality, and has been published in periodicals, such as Architectural Theory Review and The Journal of Architecture, as well as numerous books including Forty Ways to Think about Architecture (Wiley, 2014), Camera Constructs (Ashgate, 2012), and The Image and the Witness (Wallflower 2007). He co-edited the volume Emerging Landscapes: Between Production and Representation (Ashgate, 2014), and is a founding editor of Architectural Histories: The Open Access Journal of the EAHN (European Architectural History Network).
